  1. Hit the locator with some dry silicon spray. Helped decrease my sticking issues

  3. If you are interested , I found this thread very helpful. Definitely, don't want a scare at the chrono at a big match. I had to go to a 7th shot once. Never again.

    Advantages and disadvantages of 155mm mags

    I have 2 155s. I rarely use them. I think that they reload very similarly to 140s for my average sized hand. Like Gooldy, I almost always start with a 170. This past weekend, a stage called for an unloaded table start with a 5 yard run to the table and then a short run top the first position. Based on the round count of the stage, I used the 155, thinking that it would be a little easier to load on the move. I think it is a bit of a niche tool. Maybe if you are starting to buy mags from scratch, get all 155s instead of 140s.

    Limcat Metal Grip

    I have a Limcat magwell on a plastic grip. I have to use TTI basepads. Dawson SNLs on 140mm mags will not work

    Yes they are

    Chen Magwell Gen 2 for 1911

    Yes, they work. I have a Chen2 on a Wilson Combat
  9. I was having similar problems for about 1000 rounds just before the ring indexer broke. After changing it (requires an alignment tool that is free from Dillon) and a deep cleaning problem solved. I would pull the platform, clean and lube everything and re-align the platform with the above-mentioned tool

    Help me develope a dry fire routine

    There is a reason that none of the dryfire books recommend this strategy as the primary practice mode.... Just sayin'

    Bullet Pullers

    same. Works perfectly for pistol

    Bullet Pullers

    Not even close. Trust me on this. If you have volume to pull, a hammer based puller like this is painfully slow compared to a collet bullet puller. I use the Hornady Cam lock on a single stage press.

    Delta Point Pro ??

    I took a look at one at the LGS. Bright and crisp dot inside the store (but aren't they all). With the new Doubletap mount, you can run the Romeo3, DPP or RTS 2. Might be the direction I am going with my new Open build. The big issue for me is the dot size. Although the 3 MOA seemed larger than I anticipated, I like a big dots . When is the general public going to have access to the 6 MOA ?
  14. I would like the big stick with witness  holes
